Fred - still problems though

Last weekend, I fished for browns on the Grand, swinging wets on the end of about 60' to 70' of line. I was using my new trout Delta and spey casting with a single hander. Even though I used the lightest grip I could get away with, the fish couldn't pull the loop out on the take at the end of all that line. I must've missed 15 fish or so in the space of three hours -- not a single decent hookup in the bunch. I'm starting to be of the opinion that long, swung lines and smallish fish don't mix.
